Hats off to those who teach

Happy Elf Mom got me pre-occupied today with Tony Danza's project, Teach.   I actually ended up watching more than I thought I would.  Regardless of how his days did or did not go, I saw a ton of heart.  I have to say that I have had a lot of aught with different teachers over the years.  I have also had a lot of good teachers, not to mention that I was raised by a teacher, and have a very dedicated teacher in my family.

I saw that the best teachers have a lot in common with Mr. Danza... heart.  I saw tears on the program.  I saw tears in my home.  I see tears in the eyes of my family members who teach now. They don't cry because
teaching is hard, although it is.  They cry because they are worried about the kids and their future.  With that said, I take my hat off to all teachers; especially the ones who care to this degree.

As a homeschooler, I can identify with the emotions in the program. If teaching students you know a little takes the wind out of you at times, imagine when a child you are intimately close to is struggling, or upset, or you are just not seeing eye to eye.

Teaching is a sacrificial act. The good news is that most of the time, you don't realize that you are sacrificing.  I think you grow callouses to protect yourself.  I mean, I just now realized that it has been seven years since I did any artwork.  How did that happen?  I just put that part of me to the side because I had stuff to do.  I had to concentrate on teaching my kids.

Sacrifice does have its rewards though. My mom ended up being a much more fun and laid back person as a whole, when before she taught she was very high strung and suffered from high blood pressure.  She just realized that some stuff is not all that important.  Personally, I have a different perspective on a lot of things, and have discovered a lot more interests and passions through my kids. I only hope that all professional teachers experience similar rewards.
